#148. Lake Lal(l) and Mt. Agassiz - Uinta Range - Utah.   4.5 x 8.5, chromolithograph. Title on plate. This picture is Plate VIII in Clarence King's Systematic Geology, published in 1878 as part of the record of his Geological Survey of the 40th Parallel, 1867-1872. The plate is based on a sketch by Gilbert Munger. He was guest artist on the survey in 1869 and 1870. In all, ten chromos by Munger are used in the book. Go to this site page for more complete information about them and a display of all ten. King named the lake after a friend of his sister. The lake is probably the one now known as Lake Ryder in the Middle Basin on the north side of the Mt. Agassiz (the leftmost peak). Munger was in this area with the King expedition in the fall of 1869. The plate closely matches painting #37. QFD Pl.16. Tweed 2003 Exhibition n.39. Image is a direct scan of the plate.
